2000 R-1 Shift Arm - PICS

Ordered the 2000 R-1 Shifter Arm (#5JJ-18112-00) from a local dealer ($38) And just put it on. The new arm is identical to ours except its about .25 inch shorter. It was a breeze to put on, It just slides into place.

Stock FZ1 on the left, R-1 on the right


Shifter range is reduced from about 2.75 inches to 1.9 inches
(done with a sharpie taped to the shift lever)


The only problem is that the shift rod rubs on the frame. I'm not sure how I will handle this yet, for now I'll just keep it generously lubed.


I haven't ridden it yet, but wll post a report as soon as I can.

Thumbs up

Very scientifically done! Great pics too. Can you rotate the lever a spline or two to move the rod away from the frame?
Well done GD
cheers,
Dave

I just ordered one from http://store.azmusa.com/r12001shiftarm.html

This sounds like a great mod, and the rod-rub problem will be dealt with one way or another.

Unless I've missed the point of it in another thread, why?

You did miss it - came from a magazine article... The idea is to get rid of the long shift lever throw on the FZ - makes it a shorter distance to shift - the stock is too long!

Thanks for that, I was wondering what it was all about. I guess that its the old small feet, small dick problem.

Maybe it's just cold up there in Perth.....


Shit, almost forgot, I'll see if the shifter is good on my boy's 03 R1 wreck. On the other requested parts; he's still in shock, I'm still trying to wrench.

Is the '03 the same as the '00? I ordered one but I couldn't remember the year you folks used. I ordered the '03...I think I will check and see if the part #'s are different.

Okay, I ordered a (#5PW -18112-00-00). The only difference in the '00 part # and the '03 is that instead of PW...the '00 has JJ. That shouldn't make any difference...should it????

FWIW...the diagrams on partsfish are exactly the same for '00 as '03. I think I'm fine without altering my order...but some confirmation from someone here that knows better sure would make me feel better.

Now THAT would be small No, it is definitely for an '03 R1...I just hope there isn't any difference between '00 and '03.

I hope not!!!But i think so
When reading the article about the shifter they said pre 2001.
If you look from 98-01 the numbers might be different but they all have JJ in the part number.
02 and up is when they supposively change the throw from 1 7/8 "to 3".

I hope it works for you...... but its doubtful.

I think you need to call them back and switch to a 2001 or earlier.

Got it a couple of days ago.

Well worth the money and the 5 minutes it takes to swap it out.

KYfazer,
Did the connecting rod rub on the frame? If so did you find a solution?

It just slightly touched. I think when it was in first gear.(?)

I took a file to the area where the rod comes through the frame to give it a little more room. You can't even tell I did anything.
